    I hope this will be a great blessing to all Christians …

    Jesus is everything … He is the Creator and the Sustainer of "all things"

    To me, this verse has now taken on a whole new meaning:
    “... Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and through whom we live.” (1 Corinthians 8:6)

    God SPOKE everything into existence (Genesis 1) … His spoken WORD is incredibly powerful.

    “He (Jesus) was clothed with a robe dipped in blood,
    and His name is called The Word of God.” (Revelation 19:13)

    “All things were made through Him (the Word), and without Him nothing was made
    that was made. … And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us …” (John 1:1-14)

    “He (Jesus) is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.
    For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth,
    visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers.
    All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things,
    and in Him all things consist (hold together).” (Colossians 1:15-17)

    “… His Son, whom He (Father God) has appointed heir of things,
    through whom also He made the worlds;
    who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person,
    and upholding (sustaining) all things by the word of His power …” (Hebrews 1:2-3).

    Molecular scientists say only one-millionth of an atom consists of solid matter,
    and all the rest is empty space!

    At the center of an atom is a positively-charged nucleus.
    At a relatively great distance from the nucleus are one or more negatively-charged electrons.
    Electrons circle around the nucleus at an incredible speed.
    This is similar to a fan blade … both the atom and the fan appear to be totally SOLID.

    The Force-A of attraction between the electron (negative) and the nucleus (positive)
    must be exactly equal to the Force-B velocity of the moving electron …
    in order for it to maintain its’ perfect circular pattern.

    IF Jesus commanded, “All electrons slow down” …
    Forces-A would be greater than Forces-B, causing all electrons to collapse into their nuclei.

    IF Jesus commanded, “All electrons speed up” …
    Forces-B would be greater than Forces-A, causing all electrons to fly off into space.

    IF Jesus commanded either of these two things …
    all atoms would disintegrate (disappear), leaving basically nothing at all.

    Does Jesus also sustain the suffering people in Hell?

    It is amazing that we live in a world where the offenders are regarded more precious than the One they have offended and the lawless are to be defended more vehemently then the law Giver. All of a sudden "love" is transformed into something that hates and resists justice while defending and embracing those who hate righteousness.

    Of course those filled with hate for God and each other are sustained by Christ in hell in order to justly pay for their crimes against God and man. They are eternal beings who have sinned against an eternal God and their continued state or condition is that of those who love darkness and hate light and who would seek to destroy, in keeping with the character of their supreme leader - the destroyer. How justly fitting that destroyers are confined within a place where their hatred can only be vented upon others who are filled with hatred and destruction.

    I do find it quite amazing how people can exhibit severe close-mindedness (and even hatred)
    when confronted with something they don't understand ... because of their teaching, bias, etc.

    Christians in general need to be a little bit more "open" when presented with Scriptures
    and other people's opinions re: such Scriptures.

    Is it ever too late to learn something new, or are we just to stagnate forever in our old doctrines?
